Cracked Glass & Sunflowers

I have been playing along at the new Gina K. Designs site called StampTV.

One of the first challenges posted was a colour challenge. For the colour challenge for this week, we had to use Always Artichoke, Apricot Appeal and Pumpkin Pie.

For I stamped and coloured my flower and leaf images on the white cardstock. I used a variety of Copics and some water colour pencils to get my colouring. Then I layered on several layers of Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE). Once the UTEE layers were cool and hardened, I cracked the UTEE to get the fracture lines over the image. I added some distress inks and this was my end result. For more details on this process, see this tutorial in the Splitcoast Stamper archive.
